Kenji Uranishi's unique ceramic work inspires momentary
So many times you hear people say they wish they could rewind back to a moment in time so they could capture that special moment. However, everything is momentary and everything will pass as nothing stays the same.

Kenji Uranishi, a Japanese born ceramic artist who relocated to Brisbane approximately ten years ago has created a series of ceramic work inspired by the momentary interplay of light and urban landscape. This work has been especially created for the Museum of Brisbane and is on display from 19 February through to 22nd May 2016.
Kenji's combined knowledge of ancient Japanese ceramic techniques and a deep understanding and respect for his Australian surroundings has led him to create a delicate artistry of patterns and forms of ceramic works which were developed from his perception of the manmade and natural Worlds and their ever constant changes.
His series of works is being shown in The Clem Jones Gallery and is open from 10am to 5pm daily. Entry is free. A video showing Kenji at work can be found on the Museum of Brisbane's Kenji Uranishi Momentary page and gives a great insight into the focus and preciseness of his amazing talent.
